There is a range from 3 days to 3 weeks. Uncomplicated MI can be treated with ASA, betablockade and other meds. Cardiogenic shock may require more interventions such as intraaortic balloon pump, cardiac surgery and a long recovery period.

In brief: One week

Usually 3-7 days it really depends on the details.
